Writes Sue: "Here is a recipe for cool watermelon soup found several years ago in a magazine (don't remember which one) and have enjoyed it on a warm summer day with a fruit salad for lunch; or before a light dinner of fish, vegetables, and a green tossed salad."

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint 

1 tablespoon honey
